SPNN's Doc U program is a 16 week mentorship program for low-income adults. This program focuses on teaching the basics of camera and editing, interview techniques and story telling while staff and community artists mentor the individuals on their projects. In this program individuals come to the program with an idea and leave the program with a ten minute documentary on the subject of their choosing.
